3D printed Samus costume

October 27th, 2014 - by Starrley



According to Nerdist, “Replica Props Forum (RPF) user Talaaya built the Varia suit from Metroid Prime 3 by 3D printing many of the pieces…Talaaya spent several months working on the project and initially planned to make the armor using the pepakura method… Luckily for Talaaya, her friend Matt Serle bought a couple of 3D printers – specifically the ZPrinter 450. She only had to pay for materials but estimates that still cost around $1,200 just for that. Still worth it since there’s nothing like the accuracy you get from a 3D printer. Matt spent hundreds of hours on the project…That’s only the beginning of the build though. Talaaya documented the entire process at RPF and at Reddit. She only 3D printed the helmet, shoulders, chest, arm cannon, and forearm armor pieces. The rest of the suit was made from craft foam and covered in Worbla. She used a magical combination of Bondo, gesso, and Apoxie sculpt to coat the Worbla and smooth it out before adding paint. Yes,cosplayers are amazing.”


Gamer sand castles!

October 24th, 2014 - by Starrley


I’ve always been kind of freaked out by the amazing things that people can do with sand. Everything I’ve ever tried to make completely fell apart. Behold the above sand sculpture (since it’s not really a castle.) I stumbled upon this amazing thing online. global geek news says, “This work of art appears to be called ‘I am 8-bit’ and it was created by Guy-Olivier Deveau who created it for the Parskville Canadian Open.  He did an amazing job!”

I wondered what else I could find, and came up with these:






I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!
